Event Description

The “Golden Hour” is one of the pillars of emergency medicine. Capitalize on the speed and accuracy of ultrasound to take advantage of every minute. Based on the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) criteria learn the skills to perform a Focused Assessment by Sonography in Trauma, commonly referred to as the FAST scan.  Every practitioner who is responsible for evaluating the trauma patient may make the difference between life and death!  Participants in this course will benefit from “hands on scan labs” where you will practice the essential skills and techniques to acquire an ultrasound image for quick and accurate diagnosis.

AHEC has taught for physicians in the US, China, and South America. This one-day course begins with lecture where faculty will review the basics such as: ultrasound physics and instrumentation, anatomy, and procedures and protocols. Following lecture, participants will benefit from our on-site scanning lab with live models for extensive hands-on practice. The course content includes ACEP guidelines to be rapidly deployed without removal from the resuscitation area, providing the time-sensitive skills needed in emergency situations of acute thoracic and abdominal trauma.
